Hamilton Municipal Airport (ICAO: KVGC, FAA LID: VGC, formerly H30), opened in 1963, is a village-owned, public-use airport located one nautical mile (1.85 km) northeast of the central business district of Hamilton, a village in the Town of Hamilton, Madison County, New York, United States.[1]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned VGC by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[2]

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Hamilton Municipal Airport covers an area of 180 acres (73 ha) at an elevation of 1,137 feet (347 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 17/35 with a grooved asphalt surface measuring 5,314 by 75 feet (1,620 x 23 m) and a full-length taxiway. The airport is illuminated for night flying by pilot-controlled lighting (PCL), activated on the 122.7 MHz frequency (medium-intensity edge lighting and runway end indicator lights). Precision approach path indicators are available for visual approaches in both directions. Automated weather advisories, from an AWOS-3 device, are continuously broadcast on 119.42 MHz.[1]

Fuel (100LL Avgas and Jet A) is available during the airport's opening hours of 0900-1700 local, seven days a week.

For the 12-month period ending May 23, 2019, the airport had 17,310 aircraft operations, an average of 47 per day: 99.9% general aviation and 0.1% military. At that time there were 46 aircraft based at this airport: 92% single-engine, 4% multi-engine, and 4% gliders.[1]
